    That is so good guy/girl Old School! It makes me proud to still ride BMW motorcycles, well at least that is where I had that same type repair done on, years ago.

    It is called a belt not a chain for a reason. But either way you think it is going to last as long as hardened steel gears in a 2 ton car? I don't, but they are super cheap to make and it's a free...

    Cheap electric cars are what we need but at this point we need to be asking if we will ever see "cheap" cars again? Otherwise, there is no reason to not buy an electric car, except there are not...

    What stopped me getting another Subie last time was the belt drive. Great for my BMW motorcycle but at least I can change it when it wears.

    I never even contemplated buying an EV until I started a new commute and my monthly gas bill hit $300. Now whenever I see a really nice new gasoline powered vehicle I think, "Why would they buy that...

    Oops I meant to say E10. Whatever. That's how much I worry about it. Buying cheap gas without detergents is what you should be avoiding if you care about your engine.

    I have been using E15 forever and the only drawback with any vehicles built since the early 1990's is poorer gas mileage and possibly the gas goes bad faster if it is sitting for months. Tell your...

    I live in California and the last rolling brown outs I have experienced here were in the 1990's when Enron of Texas was ripping us off. Now they shut the power off here out in the country trying to...

    It has an interesting narrative. All untrue, but interesting just the same.

    Maybe it is just us old school BMW riders but I just rest my open hand on the throttle and it is cruise control....???

    But yes, the F800GT belongs in the BMW Museum of Beautiful Bikes. My...

    So you have no problem buying anything from China. You are in the majority so pat yourself on the back. But there are solutions for people who don't like to just look away from unsavory facts. BMW...

    I am one of those weirdos who cares about where a motorcycle is made. I got mine!

    Nice to get that standard ICE range on your EV. If that drive is flat then I am sure I could get 300 miles in the ID.4 the way you describe it. Out here in Socal the freeways have tons of Teslas...

    Car and Driver says they are getting 230
    miles per tank over 30,000 miles in the Type 3 and other people say low 200's but we all know real world driving is different than the manufacturer or...

    This is the best way to make a bike seem much more manageable from my experiences. And working out some too gives you a more solid stance.

    Less moving parts on any electric car so that should always be true. But high speed chases had better not be county to county as the batteries will drain quickly at speed.

    So divide Germany into Commies and Patriots too just like America? Great Russian propaganda there. Not! Patton was right about the Russian government.

    EV’s like my VW ID 4 are fun to drive but you do have to adapt to them. The charging on the road takes 38 minutes (though an update is coming in March to shorten that to 29 minutes) but sometimes the...

    I did see a white F800GTP once in San Diego years ago so I am sure some department was using them. I remember I swooned. LOL And now….we swoon at each other.

    Since they never cared to get their ICE power plant factories running right before what makes anyone think they will with EV’s?
